Slow Burn

The Slow Burn title fits this book so well. It’s a slow burn of a lovely story. It’s the story of a young man and finally getting what he wants. The gruffness in Detective Douglas Brody was fun to interact with. He is finally getting down to doing what he was supposed to do, to heal. I liked how Zach knew he would get Brody to get down to the physical therapy. When the attraction showed up between the two men it was hot and intense, though slow and subtle. It was much fun to read. When the two came together finally it was sweet, passionate and special. I gladly recommend Slow Burn for the good read it is.

Book Blurb for Slow Burn

Detective Douglas Brody has only ever known the life of a cop. Raised strict but fair by his police chief father, he joined the academy right out of school, climbed the ranks hard and fast, and now works homicide for the City of Charleston. The job is his entire life. For years it’s kept him happy enough to minimize the side of him that craves what he believes is wrong. An accident on the job puts him on medical leave and everything in Brody’s world changes. He has to prove himself once more to be best cop in the department, all while dealing with Zack – his persistent, sexy, and out of the closet physical therapist.

Zack is tan skin, big grins, floppy hair and tackles his job with the same full-blown enthusiasm he does everything else. When the “patient from hell” is thrown his way by another PT who can’t handle him, Zack is committed to achieving the impossible. His new patient is a head strong and hot as hell homicide detective, who oozes as much resentment as he does sex appeal. Any involvement with a patient, especially a man who is so deep in the closet he can’t see light, is something Zack swore he’d never do. But Brody slowly proves too much to resist…
